SD Best Practices 2007 (How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Developer Conferences)

Sep 26, 2007

Last week I spoke at SD Best Practices 2007 in Boston. Note that I did not say attended SD Best Practices 2007, because I didn’t get there until three hours before my presentation via red eye flight from Denver and worked the rest of the week from my hotel.

My talk went well enough, considering my state of jetlag and sleeplessness. The slides are embedded below (hopefully). Please enjoy.


The title and picture for this post are just a joke, really - developer conferences are just fine, and I hope to attend many more in the future. Sometimes, though, when you see the third conference title like “Scrum or Agile RUP versus TDD Iterative-Customer-Driven Development”, you lose just a little bit of your sanity.
